...Tetsuya Matsumoto left Sunday's game in the fourth inning after feeling pain in his left hamstring (he was running the bases at the time).

...Edgar Gonzalez hit a 2-run homer during a Ni-gun game on 4/25 against Lotte.
...Yoshitomo Tani essentially dedicated his grand slam homer in the 8th to Takuya Kimura.
....17,970 fans left flowers for Kimura on the offering table at Tokyo Dome on Saturday.
